DC vs SRH, IPL 2020: Rashid Khan’s magical bowling spell led Sunrisers Hyderabad to a massive win over Delhi Capitals by 15 runs at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.
The right-arm mysterious spinner, Rashid Khan, struggled to hold back tears as he dedicated his Man of the Match performance to his mother and his biggest fan who died earlier this year.
Rashid Khan took 3 wickets that led Sunrisers Hyderabad to defend 162 for its first win in the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League.
Khan dismissed Delhi Capitals’ skipper Shreyas Iyer who scored 17 runs off 21 balls. Iyer has been slapped with a fine of Rs 12 lakh after his team maintained a slow over-rate against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Apart from Iyer, Rashid Khan sent Rishabh Pant back to the pavilion while the left-handed batsman scored just 28 runs off 27 balls. Likewise, Rashid Khan had dismissed another big fish as he trapped Shikhar Dhawan in his prey. Shikhar Dhawan scored 34 runs off 31 balls.
Delhi Capitals won the toss and elected to bowl first. While batting first, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s batsmen David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson played exceptional innings of 45, 53, and 41 runs, respectively. The orange army scored 162-4 in 20 overs.
While chasing 163, Delhi Capitals lost an early wicket in the form of Prithvi Shaw, while no player crossed 40 runs. Dhawan scored 34, Iyer 17, Pant 28, Shimron Hetmyer 21, Marcus Stoinis 11, Axar Patel 5, Rabada 15, and Anrich Nortje 3.
